The software for the 9XR first began development 6 years ago. Since then it has been tweaked, tuned, changed, updated and revamped by members of the R/C community into a powerful - yet easy to use interface. Our engineers designed the physical product around the R/C communities software changes and input. The culmination of all these is the Turnigy 9XR!
For many users this will be the perfect 9 channel radio straight out of the box, but there are many tinkerers out there who love modifying and pushing the boundaries of what is possible from their radio.We have factory fitted the 9XR with an AVR ISP header to simplify the development of custom software, we have launched turnigy9xr.com as the epicentre for software developers and additional community support for all 9XR users......With the 9XR we encourage it!
The 9XR is supplied preloaded with top quality software which is full of features and yet remains easy to use. Our aim was to develop a radio for you, the hobbyist,with an extensive list of standard features usually expected from a radio system 3 times the price. Our Turnigy 9XR is everything you imagined and more!
9XR Standard Features: • 8 Channel PPM/9 Channel PCM • Full Ball Bearing gimbals • Adjustable Stick Length • Digital Trims on all Primary Axis • 16 Model Memory • Assignable Switches • Freely Assignable Channel Mixes • Graphical Dual Rate and Exponential • Sub Trim and Travel Adjust • Flaps and Differential • Throttle Hold • Supports Heli/ Aero/ Glider Model Types • Programming Templates Based on Model Type • Supports M1, M2, M3, M4 stick modes • 128 x 64 backlit Liquid Crystal Display • Built in JR & Futaba Trainer Ports • PPM & PCM Output • JR Form Factor RF Modules (Orx Dsm2, Orx Open LRS 433Mhz etc) • Programmable Timers • Low Voltage Warning and Buzzer • Supports 3s Lipo (Required) • 9XR Firmware Pre-loaded • AVR ISP Interface • Internal 2.4GHz Antenna

I just fired up my new Turnigy 9XR (mode 2) with the dedicated 9XR battery but I can't seem to go pass the ALERT (Switch warning) by using the switches. It seems that nothing happens when I activate/deactivate the switches: AIL, AUX and GEAR.
I can go past the alert by just pressing the screen-related buttons, but I can't seem to get any responses from the switches mentioned above.
Is this the default behavior, or is there something wrong with my unit?
PS. I have done no configuration what so ever yet, so it is factory config.
Can someone please tell me what the following are for and what they do, in the menu on the 9XR. Model set up menu. ppm fr/Len and shift/sel. also in the radio set up menu, haptic strength. Many thanks Phil.
I just did something similar to this. Use the throttle cut template, then reset the parameter on your hold to keep the throttle open instead of closed (using a negative number instead of a positive one), and you can play with the setting until you like it.
Hi, Peter. Hab grad gesehen das du aus DE bist. In DE brauchste keine CE fü*r die Funke. Deine Versicherung zahlt wenn was passiert, vorrausgesetzt das Sendemodul hat ne CE. Beim Import gabs auch keine probleme. Der Zoll wollte nichtmal das ich das Paket ö*ffne.
CE braucht man fü*r jedes elektrische Gerä*t. Fü*r das eigentliche Funkteil (Funkmodul) braucht man eine Konformitä*tserklä*rung. FrSky-Module haben ja die entsprechende Zulassung. In den einschlä*gigen Foren schreibt zum Thema "Import" jeder etwas anderes. Einmal geht die Funke ohne Modul problemlos durch den Zoll und bei den anderen wird das Gerä*t an die Bundesnetzagentur geschickt, die dann die "Einreise" verweigert.
Keine CE = nix gut, da ich bereits eine groessere Bestellung am Laufen habe. Funke, Alukoffer fuer die Funke, Heli FP 100 und jede Menge anderer Teile. Der Heli ist zwar baugleich zum WLtoys V911, wird aber wohl das gleiche Problem mit der CE bzw. Konformitaet haben. Kommt alles im schö*nen groß*en Karton. Ich denke, dass der Zoll hier bestimmt mit Interesse der Ö*ffnung des Pakets beizuwohnen gedenkt?
Wenn dem so ist, wä*re das eine wirklich gute Nachricht. Wo kann man das ggf. nachlesen bzw. woher bekommt man die gesetzlichen Bestimmungen zur Vorlage beim Zoll?
Andererseits wundert es dann wieder, dass die meisten Niederspannungsgeraete wie Empfaenger, ESC, Lipo usw. mit einem CE-Zeichen versehen sind, obwohl unter 50V nicht erforderlich? Auch die 9X im DE Warehouse wird mit CE-Kennzeichnung (auf dem Gehä*use der Funke) angepriesen. War da nicht noch irgendwas mit EMV. Laut Wikipedia versteht sich das CE-Zeichen als eine Art "Gü*tesiegel" fü*r den Vertrieb von Produkten im Euro-Raum.
Jetzt ist der Groschen gefallen. Vielen Dank fü*r die Geduld. Dort gibt es ja jede Menge Material zum Download. EMV und Funkrichtlinien sind auch noch dabei. Jetzt nur noch den ganzen Kram lesen und ggf. dem Zoll beibringen. Wenn dieser Haufen Bü*rokratie eine Errungenschaft der EU sein soll - dann gute Nacht. Bist Du am Ausgang dieser Transaktion interessiert? Viele Grü*ß*e und ein schö*nes Wochenende.
Ja, schon. Aber im internet findet man auch niemanden bei dem es nicht geklappt hat. Es heisst immer nur: "ich kenn da jemanden.....",oder "ich hab gehö*rt, dass...." ich leg da nicht viel wert drauf und bei mir gabs keine probleme. Naja mal sehen was bei dir rauskommt. Dir auch n schö*nes Wochenende
Auf Hö*rensagen gebe ich auch nichts. Es gibt aber in einigen Foren Diskussionen, bei denen einige Leute Schiffbruch erlitten haben. So zumindest deren Aussage ihren Forenkumpels gegenü*ber. Beim einen hat es funktioniert, beim anderen dann wieder nicht. Ich denke, da ist was dran und immer abhä*ngig vom jeweiligen Zoll.
Die Sendung steht nun auf versendet (Bestellung war am Montag). Schaun mer mal?!
Hi John, the type of battery you use determines the type of charger to use. Car battery into LiPo, not good. Charge jack is common DC coax as you're probably aware, it's just a non-balancing option if you're using LiPo. No specific charger sold because they prefer you use a 3s LiPo and many modelers have those and a LiPo charger in their collection.
The charge plug can power the radio when you are using a simulator, me, I just use the battery. The over and under voltage protection are for 2 reasons: First, it is difficult to damage the battery on charge (but this does not negate the correct charger), and the undervoltage protection keeps the battery from going below it's minimum voltage, where it can no longer be charged safely. not charging the battery is a general rule for TX LiPo's, and nowhere in Turnigy's stuff, manuals etc. does it say that it is safe to charge the battery in the transmitter, so I don't do it, nor have I made a barrel connector charger for the 9xr. You rarely have to charge it in the first place, it is not a hassle to remove it for that purpose.
It probably helped them make their price point, and, many users will just use it as is, with no need for programming. 'Course, it is er9x firmware and that just cries out for playing with the firmware, go figure.
The correct module When can we expect the module the transmitter was designed for .How do u design a transmitter with a build in antenna and then there is no module for it this beats my brain It sound to me like designing a car but u must find your own engine and buy the way none on the market is 100% for the design HK when the CORRECT MODULE I got a 9x now I need a 9xr so i can fly the 26 planes i got 16 on the 9x and 16 on the 9xr already got 19 Turnigy 9x compatible receivers
1 The thing is, they already sell all the components required to make one in various other products, just need to reconfigure some plastic. I do like the 9xr very much regardless...although we'll have to flash with openTx to gain more model memory up to 32.
i live in South Africa just to get a 9xr takes 3 months If i use the local people to buy one i pay up to 40% more So just get a module that fits and work 100% with internal antenna and all and sell it for 65.00 plus and all this questions and answers will stop and we u supported Turnigy products like the 9x can relax
Could someone please explain what the following are for and what they do. On my 9XR radio. In the model set up menu. PPM FR LEN... SHIFT SEL.... and in the Radio set up menu.... HAPTIC STRENGTH. Many thanks for your time.
Could Anyone Tell Me WHEN if Ever this Transmitter's Module will be Available, IM NOT INTERESTED to use the Turnigy OrangeRX compatible one, WHY the Hell HobbyKing has Produced a Transmitter with out the Correct Module in the first place is Damm STUPID !!!
now i can move both ailerons , but one of two ailerons can also be moved by the swich (te source) . this will be very dangerous in flight (if i move the swich during flight) how can i do to inhibit the operation of one servo from the swich .
Go to the mixing page. Select AIL for whatever the two channels you're using for your ailerons (AIL in channels 2 and 6, say). How do you select, you say? Use the down key to put the cursor under the word you'd like to change, hit menu button, scroll right or left 'til you get the source you want, hit menu again and, wham, you're done. Try 'em, yo u may need to reverse one or the other to get it right. Welcome to the do anything you want world of er9x open source firmware. I'm now addicted...
The number of channels specifies how many "accessories" you can use with your plane. The standard 4 channel systems will allow you to use
but say a 7ch system will let you use those, plus landing gear, flaps, and lights, or any other kind of extras you want on your plane. Program the servos, etc. to a certain switch or dial on the radio, then hit it and they activate.
The number of channels determines how many servos/devices you can control seperately by gimbals, pots, or switches. In the case of the 9xr, it is up to 9, but most people (like myself), are not using all of them, and in my case, I most often use 5 or 6 channels.
"JR Form Factor RF Modules (Orx Dsm2, Orx Open LRS 433Mhz etc)" -from the description.
Any recievers that match those specifications will work. I'd say using the recommended ones under the description in the "Acc" menu.
I got 9XR transmitter mod 2 with frsky DJT module. Reciever is V8R8 II version. I bind it coreectly but Even ı*f I have choosen mod2 type in radio set up and channel order RTEA type, throtle channel works like mode 1. I move the elevator stick down to prevent to motor works. How can I solve this problem? Note: ESC connection on reciever's channel 3.
Yes, this is right, it is the module that determines the range. I have 3 modules: The OrangeRX DSM2 has 650-900M range, my Flysky module will go out around 1KM, and my Frsky DJT is good for 1.5 to 2.5KM.
I, along with someone else I know, received our 9XR today. The gimbals feel MUCH nicer, and it is a big improvement. It fits the product ID : ZIP25003S3C nicely. The balance connector should be farther down, because it puts a little stress on the wires. Haven't actually flew with it yet, as I am waiting on my DJT module.

Wooww, T9xR is t arrived. Looks a little funny. Not really nice but I'll get used to it. I use the Nano Tech 3s 2500mA Lipo from the old T9x. But I had to extend the balancer. Soldering is announced. I use the Corona module with CR8D's receivers, has arrived today. This works very well. (Set a range of about 2 km have) The T9xR lies well in the hand, but it is not a sensation for the 6 years of development time. But it works, the software is good and I'm satisfied. For only $ 49 almost a gift. I was in the air now with my big Quad and must say, its no difference to the old T9xR, a little trimming and is like before. Only the new FW, i like it.

likes:- looks good , display is brighter than 9x , sticks have a better feel , takes a standard 3s lipo jst connector , which means pretty much any 2200mah 3s battery will fit.
Dislikes :- "star" selection button is poor . 12v charge socket goes direct to lipo jst connector , no ballancer so lipo will be damaged if you connect an industry standard tx charger to it. software isn't compatable with "companion 9x" so you can't connect it easily to a pc or load your existing models to the radio without wiping 9xr hex file.

Great radio. much better quality that the 9X. It definitely looks better in person compared to the pictures IMO. the gimbals feels good. switches feel really good. the whole ergonomics of the 9XR is OK, felt better. battery bay is quite big but the connector is not in an ideal place. Here is my review on youtube http://youtu.be/VH37smjFk94

Much nicer than the 9x. Nice bright screen. The switches seem to be easier to reach. Battery compartment is improved with the included piece of foam. Plastic handle feels more solid than the 9x's thin metal tube. Gimbals feel like they are higher quality. The power switch doesn't feel so cheap either. Once you put a battery in it the weight is not bad and it has a solid feel. Also like having both Futaba and JR trainer ports. The only thing I would change would be to remove the exclamation point after READY.
